Picasso and Morrisseau in France

Here's a historic photo taken in the French Provençal town of Saint-Paul de Vence in 1969. Picasso and Morrisseau exhibition posters appear together in this storefront window. Herbert T. Schwarz (M.D., collector, author and art promoter) was instrumental in organizing Morrisseau's first solo exhibition in France at Galerie Saint-Paul from 3 - 24 Sept 1969 titled "Norval Morrisseau: Légendes Indiennes du Grand Nord Canadien" (under the patronage of Eugène Bussière, Consul General in Marseille.) Schwarz also knew Picasso quite well. Since Picasso was exhibiting in the South of France, Schwarz visited Picasso while promoting Morrisseau and tending to exhibition details there.
